    During an event on August 29th 2017, Cummins unveiled an fully electric "Urban Hauler Tractor" concept which totes a 100 mile range from a 140 kWh battery pack. The truck has a 75,000 gross vehicle weight and can have the range is extended to 300 miles using additional battery packs.

    While this is a concept, a production model should be ready within a couple of years. The timing is quite interesting, considering Tesla is set to announce their Tesla Semi very soon.
